I think one of the most misunderstood things about business is that people are greedy and selfish. Greed acts as a motivational factor in choosing the best at the best price.
Greed, for lack of a better word, is good. Greed is right; greed works. Greed clarifies, cuts through, and captures the essence of the evolutionary spirit. Greed, in all of its forms, greed for life, for money, for love, knowledge — has marked the upward surge of mankind. – Gordon Gekko in Wall Street (1987).
In personal life (I believe) we are all greedy. We want the fame and the fortune; we want to move to a higher direction in life and we want to be the only one who is better at doing things.
Balancing life by being greedy and by being content is very important. Being content / satisfied helps in fulfilling life and Greed helps us in enriching life.
“At the end of the day, anybody who thinks there’s a reward for nothing, ends up losing.” – Kerry Stokes.
